ooohh ... PUMPKIN !

I fell in love with The Soap Queen's pumpkin soap a few weeks ago. Gege liked it so much that he actually bugged me to make them as favours for his birthday party. I agreed but fell behind schedule with all the preparations and we ended up pretty soap-less for this party ... B-O-O !

Mummy felt really bad so she decided to surprise Gege yesterday with his lil pumpkin.

Catching up !

gee .. I just realised that I have neglected my blog for way too long ! It's 4 a.m. in the morning and I have a batch of brownies in the oven as I am typing ... well, I did promise kiddos yummies for breakfast :)

It has been hectic with lots of activities and happenings on the home front. Meimei and I participated in her school's Children's Day fun fair and we made lil soaps for all her schoolmates. It was a great time for mummy-doter bonding. Meimei learnt to make her own soaps and I was allocated the job of packaging them -- all 200 pieces. I must admit that I am not one who can sit for hours and indulge in repetitive hand movements. I must have dozed off at least a dozen times with soap, plastic and ribbons in hand ! 

I was a GooGoo Monster on the day of the fun fair as I had not slept for more than a day ... yes, the soap and plastic and ribbons etc. and I am alittle sad that I have no photos of the fun fair to share. Still hopeful that I will be able to ask a favour of a few photographs from the school and will definately update in time !

I'm not quite sure what had come over me but spending time with my kiddos seemed to have become a priority over the last few weeks. It was as if I was making up for lost time ... or creating happy memories for them for the future. I sensed that Gege and Meimei were genuinely happy in a long long time. 

It was Gege's 11th birthday two Saturdays ago and we had a small intimate party with a few of his closest friends. Daddio sent his love and Gege couldn't be happier.

The Party

Gege claims that my sandwiches are too old-fashioned for him and his peers. Huh ? So what do pre-teens eat anyway? Brownies ? I do hope you like your breakfast son :)
